This thesis presents data from two multi-site programmes of research that have examined the social responses to malaria interventions in sub -Saharan Africa. The first dealt specifically with the attitudes and behaviours linked to a single intervention aimed at reducing malaria morbidity and mortality amongst infants (intermittent preventive treatment, IPTi). The subsequent research addressed more broadly the social and cultural context to malaria during pregnancy (MiP), but also encompassed attitudes towards and behaviours around interventions, such as intermittent preventive treatment (for pregnant women, IPTp). During the research both on IPTi and MiP, we also addressed wider relevant issues, such as local understandings of malaria, care-seeking and illness prevention.
